SEXIEST IN: Volver (2006)
Cruz’s allure has been undeniable since she starred in 1992’s Jamon Jamon as a teenager. But when she appeared in Pedro Almodóvar’s Volver (2006), the director captured her beauty at its most ripe. She instills her curvy heroine with both strength and vulnerability, and when she treats her restaurant’s customers with a heartfelt ballad, her entire being radiates.
